WEST TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - A person's golden years should be spent in a life of ease. At least that's what this month's Make A Difference winner believes.
One West Terre Haute property manager has impacted her residents so much, they wanted to make sure the entire Wabash Valley knew.
Sharon has known Megan Miller for 3 years.
"She does all these things she's not required to do," said Sharon Forbes, resident.
Megan is the property manager for Providence Place in West Terre haute.
But according to the residents, she does so much more than take their rent checks.
"(Why did you nominate Megan?) all the different things she does. She does much more than she's required to do. She does all these extra things because she cares about people," said Sharon.
Megan doesn't think her helpfulness is out of the ordinary or anything special.
"(And you stayed with her until...) Until her family got there. Anyone, anyone would have done that. That's just what people do. That's just being a good neighbor," said Megan Miller, property manager.
She said it's every person's duty to live their lives for others.
"These are these folks golden years. They should be able to spend their golden years as golden as we can make them…So if there's something I can do to make that just a little bit easier for them, then I've done my job, that's why I'm here," said Megan.
"She's a very kind, giving person. You won't find that other places. You won't find someone doing everything that she does," said Sharon.
Megan said her residents make it easy to want to help out.
"I hope I do this work for the right reason and that's why I really enjoy being here," said Megan.
But Sharon thinks it's difficult finding someone these days who is willing to go out of their way for others.
"I think it's important to recognize somebody who really goes above and beyond," said Sharon.
"I have a whatever it takes attitude. Whatever it takes to make something easier for someone, I know someone's going to do the same for me at some point in time," said Megan.
